I like to experiment with my coffee mixes and recipes, other than adding the needed cream and sugar, of course! And, naturally, I always drink caffeinated. After all, what is the point to drinking non-caffeinated coffee? Maybe health nuts would disagree that there isn’t one.
The coffee recipe I share, here, resulted when I tried a little mint flavor to go with cinnamon. Sprinkling cinnamon on top of my readied cream and sugar was recommended to me long ago by… well, never mind that part !
Because I have a breathing disorder, I many times pop a peppermint onto my tongue and breath in its throat-opening fumes as I go about my business. It gives off a wonderful fresh air appeal.
One morning, I plopped a peppermint into my already prepared coffee cup. Why not? I later discovered a red peppermint allows a little different flavor to the coffee than a green peppermint offers. A mint melts away quickly in the first pour of water from a steaming tea kettle.
I added the cinnamon sprinkle, as well. Voila! A nice little boost to my morning ensued!
And, as a little bonus, coffee breath is remarkably reduced after the drink is consumed. Enjoy!
